    Portuguese Camino

    There is some road walking but very little on busy roads. Mainly on quite roads, I didn't find it an issue.

    Portuguese Camino

    Hi Tawny, Yes, there were women who seemed to have set off on their own at least and then were walking with other people. It is well catered for along the route. There are plenty of well placed coffee shops along the way. There were people from all over the world I spoke to. Everyone was very...

    Portuguese Camino

    I only had a limited amount of time and I think the Central worked out to be the shortest. If I had more time I may have tried a longer route. That said, I am happy I did the Central.

    Portuguese Camino

    It can be a bit tough on the feet, especially in Portugal as there are a lot of cobbled sections. There is also quite a bit of road walking. I walked in walking shoes rather than boots which worked for me. But yes - particularly in Portugal it can be tough on your feet.

    Blister product advice

    I used the Compeed roll on every morning and again at night. I wore my flip flops in the evenings to let air around my feet. Seemed to work as I didn't get any blisters on the Portuguese over the last couple of weeks. I might not have anyway but who knows.

    Santiago to Porto Airport

    Hi, I wondered what is the best way to get from Santiago to Porto Airport. I see there is a direct bus which takes nearly 4 hours. There looks to be a couple of trains but on very early and one quite late which are no good for our flight times. Has anyone managed a quicker way back t the...

    Two questions: getting to the start, and an extra short first day

    I was wondering about this myself and it looks like there are buses quite regularly from the Airport to Valenca. http://www.autna.com/en/

    Hello All, I have 2 weeks off work at the end of September and I'm looking for advice on what would be a good 10 or so days walking on the Camino. I don't really need to finish in Santiago and I did Sarria to Santiago last November so don't want to do that part again (although I really enjoyed...

    Finding The Time To Walk A Camino

    I like your style. The thought of still working where I am now in five years time is enough to make me resign tomorrow though.

    Finding The Time To Walk A Camino

    Thanks for the reply's. It is interesting to know how people do 'make' the time. I have asked for 4 weeks unpaid leave and to be able to tag 2 weeks holiday on to give me 6 weeks in September. Ill see what they come back with. I work for a large international company based in the UK. On the HR...
